My first Egyptians show! They did this show and another two days later, on January 1st 1991, in Baltimore. I was worely tempted to go but refrained for some reason I don't remember.
Another noisy Maxwell's crowd, but this time I seem to be closer to the music so it sounds a lot better than the solo show from October 1990. But maybe that's just because the band is louder than Robyn solo...
I can't find the original master cassettes for this show so this is sourced from a first gen listening copy that I made for myself. There are a couple tape flips in strange places still: after Oceanside (a real tape flip) and Chinese Bones (added during the first gen dubbing). There's also a recorder pause at the end of Balloon Man before the encore starts.
